Allocation Formula Of the $17,771,000 budget appropriation, $993,000 was provided for a cost-of-living adjustment and $409,000 is provided for growth.

Funding for 2007-08 is equal to the 2006-07 rate per average daily attendance (ADA) multiplied by the 2006-07 funded ADA. The rate per ADA is the lesser of the rate received in 2005-06 increased by the 2006-07 cost-of-living adjustment, or 80 percent of the 2006-07 statewide average adult education revenue limit amount. Funded ADA is the lesser of the reported 2006-07 Annual ADA or the LEAs' ADA cap for 2006-07. The 2006-07 cap for LEAs with 20 units or less of ADA in 2005-06 is equal to the LEA's 2005-06 ADA plus 20 ADA for growth. The cap for LEAs with more than 20 units of ADA in 2005-06 is the ADA cap for the 2005-06 plus two and one-half percent for growth.

If growth funds are insufficient, an adjustment will be made to the per-pupil growth rates.
